My Photoshop is back! Hooray! I screwed around a good part of the day yesterday trying to install it. Don finally got it to install today. Apparently there were some programs in my start up collective that were causing it to not open. I never would have thought of that. Anyway, it’s back and Don is great. Now I can show you a picture of a mirror I made for the bathroom.
That’s the mirror outside. This is it in the bathroom:
That’s some hard to photograph glass, there. The little fused tiles are made of black irridized Bullseye and dichroic glass. You glue the dicro on (coated side up) and fuse the pieces face down on fiber paper to make the dichroic sink in flush with the irridized rectangles. Then you grind it and solder it together like a stained glass window. Pretty slick and pretty simple. I used to make these all the time for the shop. They’re purty.
SO, did you know that elephants can recoginze their own reflections in mirrors? That fun fact was on an all-animal episode of CBS This Morning. A teaser for the show promised a picture of a cuttlefish and a film clip of a cute little hedgehog so, of course, I watched the whole thing thinking that there would be more cuttlefish and more hedgehog where that came from. And, of course, there wasn’t because the show was too busy concentrating on…what do you think? Dolphins and monkeys. Always with the dolphins and the monkeys. That grinds my gears-CBS using a hedgehog to lure me in.
